Just a few weeks ago zBrush released its most recent update to the zBrush modeling program. Now with uArtsy and Sculpteo – turn your zBrush designs into a print!
It’s no secret that designing for a 3D print can be a complicated process. You have to worry about inverted faces, singular points, non-manifold parts, floating surfaces and a whole array of problems. But there are a lot of resources which can help (including our material pages).
For one, there are the Sculpteo repair tools. Sculpteo’s array of online tools have the ability to fix a lot of problems that your everyday 3D graphic designer might not have in mind. The pre-checks and repairs including fixing inverted faces and singular points, and from there you can even thicken your model directly on our site. We’ve even released an eBook which will give you all of the information you’re looking for when it comes to 3D design.
But if you need a more personal experience, with a teacher there to help you through the design process, start to finish, you should check out uArtsy. uArtsy offers online classes curated and run by industry-leading 3D artists. These are teachers that have worked on games like Assassin’s Creed and won awards like the Cannes VFX award. They’re really not messing around when it comes to their capabilities (and resumes). That’s why Sculpteo is excited to team up with the uArtsy team by offering discounts for videos on their website! Using the code sclp20off you’ll receive 20% any and all videos that have to do with 3D printing! (Here’s a 3D printing class by Joseph Drust, to save you a search!)
From there you’ll receive discounts for your prints on Sculpteo. That way you can take your new skills and put them to the real test: physics!
